    South Carolina Governor Admits to Extramarital Affair (title updated)

    AP, 4:30 PM Monday 22 June

    Where is South Carolina's governor?

    The lieutenant governor doesn't know, and neither does a state senator who's a close confidante. Even his wife is in the dark.

    Gov. Mark Sanford's unannounced absence from the state capitol perplexed some politicians Monday, and his staff wouldn't say where he was. His wife said she hadn't heard from him in several days including Father's Day.

    "He was writing something and wanted some space to get away from the kids," Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press while vacationing with the couple's four sons at their Sullivans Island beach house. She said she wasn't concerned about her husband, the state's two-term Republican chief executive.

    Sanford, who's also chairman of the Republican Governors Association, earned a reputation as the nation's most vocal anti-bailout governor by refusing $700 million in federal stimulus money for schools until he lost a court battle earlier this month.

    His spokesman Joel Sawyer released a statement saying the governor was taking a break after losing the fight.

    Taking time off is one thing, just disappearing is something else. Not even letting the lt. governor know is just wrong.

    Hmmm...

    Something is odd about this....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I agree this does sound fishy. There is a chance that this is yet another Republican lack of morals scandle in the brewing.

    It took 3 posts for this thread to spiral into Partisan Hackery.

    Thank you sir.

    Well, of course there is a "chance".

    There is a chance he decided to resign.

    There is a chance he decided to have a sex change operation.

    There is a chance he just became the president of Russia.

    There is certainly no reason to be partisan toward this post. It's strange, plain and simple. No reason to throw around hypothetical scenarios out there. We will have to wait it out and see. At least have something to base bias on, other than the R next to his name.

    I'm not one for hyper-partisan hackery, but I do believe that was a joke?
